Rushern Baker returns donation from doctor

Prince George’s County exécutive Rushern Baker has returned a $500 donation received at a fundraiser last Wednesday from Laurel physician Marza Baig, The Washington Post reported.

Baig has been tainted by the bribery scheme in the county. He was caught on a federal videotape handing $15,000 to former county executive Jack B. Johnson on the day of his arrest in 2010. He cooperated with authorities after pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit extortion and is scheduled to be sentenced in the spring, according to The Post.
